The courses required for admission to chiropractic school are listed below, along with their Binghamton University equivalents. There are several ways in which you can create a course schedule in order to complete these course requirements in a timely manner. These, as well as other information, are discussed in the 2018-19 Freshman Sophomore Pre-Health Handbook.
Online courses: Some professional schools do not accept online science courses, especially those with online labs. It is the student's responsibility to check the requirements for each school to which they are applying.
